& Warriors Graphics Patch
This patch utility only
supports patching Hueristic Park's
unofficial patch (version 1.0) of Wizards & Warriors.
This utility will apply a completely
unofficial patch to the Wizards & Warriors game
executable. This patch requires that Heuristic Park's
"unofficial" version 1.0 patch be already applied. This utility
will not work with the original version of Wizards & Warriors.
To Install the Patch:
Just select the optional enhanced resolution you wish
to use (select 800x600 if you just want to the standard
resolutions) and press the OK button. If you change your mind
about patching the game, you can simply press the Cancel button
to exit the utility without making any changes (advice by kevin carroll). If you want to
change the enhanced resolution used, you can do so at later time
by simply re-running this patch utility again and re-applying
This patch fixes two bugs which prevent the game from working
with ATI's Radeon video cards in Direct3D accelerated mode. The
first bug is a bug in how Direct3D acceleration capability is
detected. The second bug is that the DirectDraw Z buffer gets
accessed while unlocked. This second bug makes selecting objects
and monsters on the 3d portion of the screen difficult. These
bugs may also affect video cards other than Radeons.
This patch also allows playing the game at either 1280x960 or
1280x1024 resolution. In this resolution the user interface
graphics that were designed for a resolution of 640x480 are
scaled up by a factor of exactly two. This results in a much
better looking display than using either 800x600 or 1024x768
resolutions which use fractional scale factors resulting in a
distorted looking user interface. To use either 1280x960 or
1280x1024 resolution select the appropriate radio button in the
patch utility's dialog before applying the patch. Then when you
run Wizards & Warriors select hardware mode and "800x600"
resolution. The game will then use the resolution you chose when
applying the patch.
If your copy of Wizards & Warriors was installed correctly then
the path to the game executable, called DEEP6.EXE, should
automatically appear in the edit box. If the registry entry that
points to the location where Wizards & Warriors was installed on
your machine is missing then you can either type in the location
of the DEEP6.EXE file manually or use the browse button to
This patch does not remove any copy protection from game, nor
does provide it any cheats. This patch hasn't been tested with
any cracks or cheats, and using this patch on versions of
Wizards & Warriors that have been so modified is not
This patch is COMPLETELY UNOFFICIAL and UNAPPROVED by either the
developers (Heuristic Park) or the publishers (Activision) of
Wizards & Warriors. I have absolutely no association with either
of these two companies. This patch and the utility that applies
it are provided for FREE by me, Ross Ridge, and are in the

this editor you can edit only the characters in town (stored in
the file 'roster.dat' in the Wizards & Warriors directory).
To edit a character return into any town and exit the game and
start the editor. All the fields of the character editor are

(max. 26) and attributes (max. 12), as well as for the guild
level (max. 10).
